Designing Your Visions!

By: Anne Palumbo


When resizing an image in Grayscale, please remember these things:

  • Users wait no more than 15 seconds for a page to download.
  • Image resolution is no more than 72 pixels.
  • Most clickable images measure about 90w x70h or so, and weigh no more than 3 or 4k.

    If you have an RGB, or INDEXED mode image:
    1. Choose IMAGE; MODE; GRAYSCALE.
    2. A box will open asking if you want to 'discard all color information'. click 'ok'.

    If the image is a Bitmap:
    1. Choose IMAGE; MODE; GRAYSCALE.
    2. A size ratio box will open. click 2.
    3. Choose IMAGE; IMAGE SIZE; Change resolution to 72. Click ok. The size of your
    image is now 98w x67h at 7k. You can now adjust the size accordingly.

    To sharpen the picture:
    1. Choose FILTER; RENDER; UNSHARP MASK.
    2. Guess what? Usually, what PhotoShop calculates does the trick!
    3.When the UNSHARP MASK box opens, click 'ok' or adjust the levels a few pixels at a
    time.

    THEN:
    1.Adjust the AMOUNT to about 20%, The RADIUS to about 1.0 pixels, and the
    THRESHOLD TO 0 levels.
    2.Remember, you can always choose EDIT; UNDO if you don't like the results!

    Good Luck!
